By James Brooke // Rising 165 meters in the air, the world’s tallest flagpole landed Tajikistan in the Guinness Book of World Records last month, just in time for the nation’s 20th anniversary of independence.
David Chambers, an American, built the tubular steel pole. “We always tell the client when we are building these massive poles, we are not building them for Guinness World Records,” he said. “We are building them for the nation and for the people.”
